The villa is set in an olive grove with stunning views of the mountains and the sea. it is beautifully appointed both inside and out with a good size pool and BBQ. The village of Prines with an excellent taverna is 5 minutes by car. Atsipopoulo with a good supermarket and bakery is 10 minutes. The main town of Rethymnon with shops, a wonderful selection of restaurants and night life and a good beach is 20 minutes away. There are many more beaches along the coast within 30 minutes. The Sofoulakis family, who own the villa cannot do enough to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, Highly recommended.
We have been renting villas in Crete for many years,but our recent stay in Villa Ifigenia surpassed anything we have experienced so far.first of all it is brand new ,we were in fact it's first guests,but even so everything was " just right ".We were welcomed with a refrigerator full of goodies,fruit and vegetables,eggs,beer,even a delicious cake,and some freshly baked fish...The facilities in and outside the villa are top quality.No expense has been spared to make you feel at home.The pool is cleaned every day,,and the hospitality shown by the owners was outstanding.
There are many taverns in the local village of Prines,and the beaches and attractions of Rethymno are only a short drive away.
